LONG DISTANCE REVOLUTIONARY: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Controversy accompanies his name. Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted in 1981 of murder, and to this day lawyers and human rights activists attest to his innocence in the killing of police officer Daniel Faulkner. After a trial that “failed to meet international standards,” according to Amnesty International, Mumia Abu-Jamal is not only still alive but continuing to report, provoke, and inspire. This riveting film explores his life before, during, and after Death Row. Join us for an intimate portrait of America’s most famous political prisoner.
Sarah Bellamy, Co-Artistic Director of Penumbra Theatre
